Dessertathon: Sugar acquired

After a busy couple of weeks, I finished one of the books on my Dessertathon TBR! One down, six to go! For the Sugar prompt (feel-good book), I reread Casey McQuiston's One Last Stop for the umpteenth time. I love this book so much. Casey McQuiston's prose always gets me. I love the historical tidbits… Continue reading Dessertathon: Sugar acquired

TOP TEN TUESDAY: Comfort Reads

Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic: COMFORT READS. My comfort reads confirm what I already believe: things ARE as bad as they seem. Strangely, I find these books uplifting. I like knowing I'm not alone. These are my top ten comfort reads. I wouldn't call any of them "lighthearted." (Well...maybe One Last Stop.) Would You Rather?… Continue reading TOP TEN TUESDAY: Comfort Reads

January Wrap-Up: A good time??

I had...a surprisingly nice January? It wasn't all great. I came down with what I'm PRETTY sure was Omicron. Would not recommend. I spent most of the month, though, housesitting in Tacoma. That I WOULD recommend. I turned 29, ate a lot of cake, hung out with friends and family, and had an existential crisis.… Continue reading January Wrap-Up: A good time??

Top Ten DNFs of 2021: Surprise addendum

I miscounted. I swore I'd written about my top ten DNFs of last year. Turns out I forgot one. (I guess I got too riled up about Payback's a Witch.) My tenth 2021 DNF gets its very own post. Meet Cute Diary, you're up. Apologies in advance to those who liked it. I sure didn't.… Continue reading Top Ten DNFs of 2021: Surprise addendum

Top Ten Least Favorite Books of 2021

I started this new habit of DNFing any book I'm not fully enjoying. Instead of spite-reading a number of one- and two-star books, I DNFed most of them. As such, there were fewer contenders for this year's Least Favorite Books list. I still found some stinkers. These were the worst books I read in 2021.… Continue reading Top Ten Least Favorite Books of 2021
